steve sedgwick following the story in thmadrid, but firs out to stefane in paris. it sounds like there will be a contrast with the spanish budget. it's tax hikes that seem to be the focus. >> in france it will be focus on tax hikes. that's the decision about to be announced by the french government. basically 20 billion euros in additional taxes in the budget for the next year. and only 10 billion euros in spending cuts. that's the plan to reach the deficit target. that's the best case scenario because the budget is based on a growth assumption of 0.8% which seems to be far too optimistic. plenty of private economists believe the french economy won't grow more than 0.3% next year. in that case, the government will need to find an additional 5 feweuro of spending cuts on t of what will be announced today. the budget will include one very symbolic measure, new tax rate of 75% for people earning more than 1 million euros per year. it will be implemented only on around 2,000 people and it will raise only 200 million euros. so that's a symbolic measure that the prime minister has been

? on the technical side, ennis tanner. on the fundamental side, steve cortez. good to have you on the program. thank you so much for joining us today. ennis, let's talk charts. which stock looks better? >> so let's look at barnes & noble first. normally i like to buy strength and sell weaknesses. barnes & noble over the last four years has been between $10 and $25. $10 has been strong support. book value is around $12. i think this is an important support level. i expect barnes & noble to bounce off of that important $10 support area. in contrast, amazon, i think, is at an entry point that's much more dangerous. amazon has been in a much stronger four-year up trend. the four-year chart of amazon from 2008 to 2012 is basically a great bull market. >> good looking chart. >> very good looking chart. normally i'd like this. in the last year, it really has encountered resistance at 250. i think this is a much riskier entry than barnes & noble. >> so you're not of the belief that when a chart is looking this good that it continues to go up. >> normally i do like to buy strength and sell weakness. in this

. >> steve is making the point here with the three days of declines prior to today that apple stock actually factored in those supply disruptions already. >> no doubt about it. supply disruptions, we knew that this was going to be a big ramp and they were launching it out in a lot of other areas than they had in the past. they needed a lot more products. the demand will be there. at the end of the day i think the focus is going to be on how much an upgrade this is. people who bought the 4s last year, how much of an upgrade is this. the expectations got out of control heading into this opening weekend. >> right. >> to testimonier the expectations going into the holiday season. >> you can probably -- on a relative basis to other analysts on street, maybe steve milanovich is a bear. he's still optimistic about apple in general, when i asked him about lowering the shipments by 6 million, i asked if that would be simply booked in the next quarter. he said not necessarily. but there is a risk, he believes, that those people do actually go to a samsung product. >> i suppose there is a risk for sure

's own steve sedgwick in madrid. what's the situation on the ground? >> yeah. on the ground in this part of madrid we are just waiting to see if we see a recurrence of the violent scenes we have seen in the last 24 hours. scenes i have seen too much in greece and basically people are protesting against the kind of austerity that we know has to come if this country will get itself back on its feet. the austerity bill gross was talking about in order to reassure the markets and those euro zone partners that spain is serious about getting the budget under control. this is a government that's struggling to bash a mole, so to speak. it bashes one problem, another comes up. if it bashes the banking sector then catalonia or andalusia comes up again. we heard how severely this could affect the population. it's a population that isn't worried about recession. the economy has contracted double digits since 2008. we are in the midst of an enormous housing crisis. that's how we got into the big mess in the first place. the austerity may well please the markets. it may please the germans, but you can
